Bring together two great Adobe Stock photos to draw people in to your social posts. It’s easy to make your composition look realistic with help from Adobe Photoshop.

Find the perfect background

Search for a warm image of a beach or another natural environment to blend with an image of a runner we’ve already downloaded.

Mask the main subject with the Quick Selection tool

Open the images in Photoshop and position the runner over the beach image.

Use the Select Subject feature of the Quick Selection tool in Photoshop to isolate the runner in the image.

Add a Curves adjustment layer

Select the adjustment layer and open the Properties panel. Click the Auto button while pressing the Alt key (Win), or Option key (Mac).

Select custom Shadow and Highlight colors from the background image.

Upload to Adobe Spark

Upload the composite image into the background of the Spark Post project.

Now you have a unique and convincing image created from two Adobe Stock images.
